Andrew's biography

Andrew is a teacher and examiner with nearly two decades of experience supporting students with Common Entrance, Philosophy, Religious Studies and Politics examinations and other humanities subjects. A well respected specialist, Andrew has worked with Ofqual, the exams regulator, as a subject expert for a number of years. A popular tutor, he is able to blend skill development, knowledge acquisition and analysis into his tutorials by linking the theoretical with practical experiences.

Andrew endeavors to create a productive and engaging learning environment where students are comfortable asking for help and feel reassured. This has had good results with a number of tutees gaining 2 grade improvements and 80% achieving an A* or their target grade. This emphasises Andrew’s key specialism as an exam specialist, able to break down complex assessment mark schemes and communicate what a student needs to do in practical terms. It is also evident in his successful guide to exam writing, “How to write an Essay and get a Top Mark”.

Andrew also provides tailored support to Common Entrance candidates (13 plus) in the humanities. His most recent Harrow candidate who was tutored by Andrew achieved the highest mark for History and second highest for Philosophy and Ethics. Andrew can provide tailored Common Entrance support across the humanities as well as interview preparation.

An experienced teacher and tutor for the International Baccalaureate, Andrew can provide support with Philosophy and Theory of Knowledge assessments and presentation support. Having taught at the best rated IB school in the world, Andrew can be considered an authority on the requirements needed to progress across a range of subjects.
Due to the amount of work he has undertaken with students that intend to go to university, he is also well placed to advise on the UCAS process and review UCAS statements.

Although Andrew is well established as a classroom teacher and tutor, he has also enjoyed working on education policy. He helped develop the SEN Code of Practice when working for the then Secretary of State for Education. This passion for education, across multiple levels, is conveyed through well structured and planned online lessons, using a range of software.
